“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Primavera beach is easily the best hotel in Malia, Nikos Maria and both their families where so kind and accomodating, nothing was too much trouble! If we had any issues at all they wouldnt think twice about bending over backwards for us. The pool was always clean and full, brilliant atmosphere, food was fantastic, beds comfy and the rooms stylish. The staff aswell where also brilliant!! Fun to be around, overall the whole experience was brilliant, 10/10 I will definitely be returning as Nikos and Maria made everything really personal I have them on facebook and know I am welcome back, cant wait for the next holiday!!

Would like to say thanks to Nikos and family for a fab holiday. Defo the best hotel in malia. 2 minute walk from the strip and about 30 secs walk to the beach. The hotel bar oscars is fab, great atmosphere and the bar staff are great. We were very warmly welcomed with a free cocktail and some banter from nikos and the bar staff. PERFECT hotel for young people looking for a friendly, clean hotel to stay in while in malia. Thanks again, we will defo be returning. Love THE GYMNASTS :)

I stayed in primavera as a group of three at the end of september when malia was quiet as soon as we got there we were given a very friendly welcome and a free drink and where it was quiet we were given a choice of two rooms when we were by the pool we was aloud to play our own music and everytime any of the staff passed us they always gave us a lovely smile and said hello and made conversation which made us feel very much at home and we all felt like we was part of the family and every day we had are room cleaned and even had our items laid out nicely for us i really feel like the maid really knew how we liked our room i really feel like the all the staff went out there way to please us and me and my friend were always saying to each other about all the sweet things they did if i were to go back to malia i would 100% go back to primavera i reckon its the best hotel in malia i was sad to leave.

Well where do I start by far the greatest 10 days of my young life arrived with 2 other girls on the 5th September at around 2 in the morning was met off the coach by Nikos the owner and one the guys that worked there,Adam. Was welcomed in & given a free cocktail beautifully made by Kye!! We then had a bit of banter with nikos and the lads and then was later shown to our room Adam and Nikos the little babes that they are carried our suitcases :) Next day straight up to catch some rays at the pool which is a good size plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas and plays good music all day and you also have the beaut pool b**ch Andy who is basically your man slave that gets you food and drinks deff recommend the food at Oscars its beaut super tasty and affordable First night out my friend managed to nearly amputate her toe (slight exaggeration but was pretty bad) and Nikos was brilliant made sure she was okay told us to head to the medical centre to get it sorted whole duration of the holiday Nikos kept making sure she was okay and provided us with bandages he's a true Greek hero :) The maid is an absolute life saver she was in the room every other day cleaning and every few days we was given clean towels and the beds had been changed, without her the room would of been a bomb site !! The room is exactly what you need we stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment had cooking facilities if you wanted to make pasta which was a fave on holiday you have table and chairs in the room if you all want a romantic meal, bathrooms perfect shower toilet sink had a balcony not huge but perfect to sit out and chill. For a young persons hotel its perfect its not asif you spend much time in the room anyway you go to malia to soak up the rays and drink and much cheap alcohol as you can. The hotel also has a bar called Oscars great atmosphere great music great bar staff great people and we also got lots of free drinks and shots throughout the holiday Beach is literally a 2 second walk from the hotel when standing in Oscars bar you can actually see the sea!! strip is not far away at all literally like a 5 minute walk but of course if your hammered and your eyes and legs are not working may take longer ill let you find that out ha!! Hotel is perfect distance from the strip that you dont get the mental music keeping you awake. At night there is a security guard who is an absolute babe we called him our care bear ha!! good having security because you know its safe when your coming home from a naughty night out on the strip basically to sum my whole experience up it was pretty awesome Nikos and Maria are the nicest most friendly people you will ever meet in malia and will definitely go that extra mile to make sure you happy and okay thank you so much for having us and we shall be back next summer to come and work !! Would deff recommend this hotel to young people who wish to stay at a good value for money hotel that has excellent atmosphere.

Went to Malia or 2weeks at end of August. Was just mysel and a friend. On arrival we got free cocktails and then shown to our room. Apartments were 2mins from the beach and 5mins from the main clubs. Yanis the security guard was brilliant and felt safe as ever staying there had no problems at all! Nikos is just brilliant..started at Oscars before the strip getting free shots. I'd recommend staying here if you go to Malia nicest people you could meet :) loved it

On the 17th of July myself and 23 others left to travel from Aberdeen to Malia for two weeks...it would be our first holiday abroad alone and we were more than ready for it! There was 6 of us girls and 18 boys - The girls stayed at Primevara, and the boys stayed next door at the Kastro Appartments...these apparments both shared the same pool area so it was ideal for us.

We were greeted by Leah, Amanda & Chelsea, just a few of many lovely workers at the hotel. They were brilliant..within seconds we had a free cocktail in hand and our suitcases had been carried up the stairs to our rooms. We were shown how to use our air con and had the option of using a safe which was located in a cupboard in our room.

We arrived at around 11pm so we quickly got changed and came back down stairs to Oscars, the hotel bar. The place was buzzin and there seemed to be good deals on the drinks (15 euros for an hour of unlimited drinks or two drinks for 5 euros) its safe to say it wasnt long before I had to run outside to spew in the bushes across the road. Lightweight!

We drank in Oscars until around 2am before hitting the strip most nights as thats when the strip seemed to get busy. Its a great way to start your night, Nicos and Maria really take care of everyone and often gave out free shots, cocktails or fish bowls.

The poolside was ideal, you didnt have to move an inch if you didnt want to with pool boys Adam and Andy going around to serve you drinks and food from 11am to 8pm every day. The pool area was a perfect size, you really do get to bond with everyone around it from both hotels. Met alot of lovely people which made the experience even better!

The rooms were lovely especially when you consider the price of them, they have everything you need and more and were cleaned every second day...Even after I broke my bed on the 4th night Nikos had it changed in the morning without any problems and didnt even charge us for it. Although it was an accident you can never be sure at these hotels as they often try to charge you for anything. This was not the case at Primavera. Everyone is very understanding and lovely.

Worried about the security? dont be! Yanis starts at 2am and works on until 8am making sure nobody gets into the hotel that shouldnt be...(unless of course you pay 25 euros to bring someone back with you). Yanis has a lot of patience and is good as his job. He once carried one of my friends to our room and often expressed his concern for anyone that had a bit too much to drink.

We all had the time of our lives and would not chose anywhere else to stay in Malia. HONESTLY, CHOOSE PRIMAVERA!

Malia is the place to be! myself and a friend just spent a week at primavera apartments in Malia and loved every minute. We met the lovely Nikos and his family who were very friendly and offered help for anything that you needed. The hotel was very clean and had everything you needed. Malia is great for all types of holidays wether you are a family or a group of friends. The hotel is in the perfect place, a two minute walk from the beach, bars and restaurants right on your door step. We had such a great time that we will be going back next year.
